During the 19th century, based on non-sectarian principles, the Society started a number of "British Schools" and teacher training institutions, which in many places maintained an active rivalry with the "National Schools" of the Established Church.
It also established schools abroad, helping with the provision of staff and other support.
The Lancasterian system (or monitorial system) used older children who had already been given some education to teach the younger children.
It was designed to provide a cheap basic education with limited resources and numbers of teachers.
Joseph Lancaster's School in Borough Road, Southwark, London, established in 1798, was an important development in the provision of universal free education for children.
